Kirstie Alley to sue tabloidFebruary 22nd, 2008 - 1:43 pm ICT by admin
London, Feb 22 (IANS) Kirstie Alley, the actress-turned-weight loss queen, is taking legal action against a tabloid which reported that she was fired by the dieting company Jenny Craig for being too fat. Alley, best known for her role in the TV show “Cheers”, had resigned from Jenny Craig after being with them for three years, contactmusic.com reports. A few days later she revealed that she was going to launch her own dieting firm in 2009. But she is upset with the tabloid for claiming that she was fired for being too fat and now wants to sue them.
She said: “It’s hurtful and harmful to me. I’m going to litigate. It’s chronic and has been chronic for the last three years. This one (false report) is extremely damaging.”
